XCELERATE GYMS to open fourth site in the UK with East Grinstead confirmed

XCELERATE GYMS, the fast growing UK-based health and fitness franchise with a unique family offering at its core, has confirmed its fourth site will open in East Grinstead, West Sussex, in Winter 2023. 

Following on from the successful opening of XCELERATE GYMS Solihull and Forest Hill at the end of July, the brand is quickly expanding its network, with more announcements and pre-sales to begin across the UK through the second half of 2022. 

Based on the ground floor of a new residential development, the new gym will be located in the town centre of East Grinstead. The re-development is adjacent to the town’s amenities including supermarkets and other local retailers, and will provide the local community and its families with a new fitness facility designed to accommodate everyone from ages 5+, as part of XCELERATE’s unique X-TRIBE family membership. 

With equipment kitted out by leading suppliers including Dyaco, Power Plate, Wattbike, Johnny G Spirit Bikes and Hydrow, XCELERATE GYMS East Grinstead will become one of the first commercial gyms to have the new, tech-laden and immersive Hydrow rowing machine, with a patented drag mechanism making it the closest experience to rowing on the water.

Members at East Grinstead will also be some of the first across the XCELERATE network to experience the gym franchise’s brand-new indoor cycling classes, with its large, dedicated spin studio featuring top of the range bikes from the Johnny G Spirit range, and a fully immersive experience with lighting, screens and sound system, all designed to motivate members to their reach peak performance.

With construction set to start in mid-August, the 7000ft² site will also feature a large group exercise studio to support the award-winning X-NATION programming and classes. 

X-NATION is the exclusive membership product designed by XCELERATE GYMS for younger members aged 5-15. Designed to bring to life fitness and combat sports classes that develop both the physical health and mental wellbeing of younger members, X-NATION also aims to create a love of fitness and an understanding of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

The X-NATION programme helped the team at XCELERATE GYM Edgware and its amazing X-TRIBE members, the Knight family, win a National Fitness Award within just 8-months of opening, with the programme also shortlisted as a finalist in this year’s generational category at the ukactive Awards. 

It’s been a busy year for XCELERATE GYMS, and in announcing their latest site at East Grinstead, CEO and founder Mark Chambers said, “It’s been a whirlwind 12-months and we have achieved so much already, but we know we are only at the start of our journey. We want to enable XCELERATE members across the UK to achieve the full value of their ‘X’, and to deliver on this mission we need to continue to work with our business owners to meet our planned rollout of new UK sites. The second half of 2022 is going to be busy, with a number of new locations to be confirmed, pre-sales started, and gyms opening.

“The feedback from our members at Edgware, Solihull and Forest Hill means we know that our product mix is right, that our focus on young people and families is something that both members and business owners are really buying into, and that this point of difference shows why XCELERATE GYMS really is Made Better, Made Different and Made for Everyone.” 

On confirming the gym in East Grinstead, XCELERATE franchisee Mehran Mehmood said, “Having researched the market and spoken to a number of fitness franchises, XCELERARTE GYMS was the standout choice from day one. I love the brand, I love its products, and the future plans for the X-NATION Games, plus the fact that it provides young people with structured classes as well as the chance for families to workout together, hangout together and get fit, together.

“With the site confirmed and the building work about to begin, I can’t wait to work with the team at XCELERATE to open the gym in East Grinstead and help all our members achieve their X!”
